WORKSHOP: Writing Erotica 101
This workshop is FREE to Passionate Ink members and only $35 for non-members.
In this virtual writing workshop, Rachel Kramer Bussel, professional erotica author and editor of over 70 anthologies, will take you through the ins and outs of modern erotic writing. Learn how to get started, develop your voice, easily find story ideas, pen sex scenes, and write from a wide range of perspectives. Through the use of writing prompts and examples from published erotica, you’ll discover how to incorporate everyday scenarios as well as outlandish fantasies into your writing, and make them fit for particular publications.
Bussel will also talk about submitting your work and keeping up with the thriving erotica market, including anthologies, ebooks and print books, apps, magazines and websites. Please have paper and writing implements or a computer to use for writing exercises. You will have the option to share your work and ask questions. A bibliography with erotica resources will be provided.
